PRESCOTT, AZ (CBS5) -

A 22-year-old man referring to himself as the "Dark Lord" was arrested for after he allegedly set a Bible on fire and then urinated on it on the front steps of a Prescott rescue mission.

Eric Minerault, of Prescott, was standing on the steps of the Gospel Rescue Mission on Lincoln Street when officers were called about 9 p.m. by an employee who said a man was burning something in front of the mission, according to a Prescott Police Department report.

Minerault was dressed in black and wearing a long, black-and-red robe and pentagram necklace, according to the report.

A wet Bible that appeared to have been burned was on the ground near Minerault.

He told police he burned and then relieved himself on the Bible and chose the mission because he believed it was a place of Christian worship and was "cursing the Christians," according to the report.

When asked why, he replied simply because he is the "Dark Lord," according to the report.

Minerault was arrested and taken into custody and booked into the Yavapai County Detention Center for unlawful symbol burning, a misdemeanor.
